Conference on the Evaluation of EU Cohesion Policy



The European Commission is organising the 9th Conference on the Evaluation of EU Cohesion Policy in Porto on 16-17 September 2021. Under the topic "Shaping Transition with Evidence", the conference will feature various keynote speeches, workshops and panel discussions.

Cohesion policy is at the forefront of the EU’s green and digital transitions that will shape the process of recovery and the future of Europe over the next decades. The COVID-19 crisis has shown once more the essential role of cohesion policy in helping Member States and regional authorities to respond quickly and flexibly to the health and economic crisis triggered by the pandemic helping the most affected territories, sectors and population. Evaluations carried out by the European Commission and the Member States play a crucial role to ensure that programmes deliver results while leaving no one behind.

On 17 September, Dr Jan-Philipp Kramer, head of Prognos AG's Brussels office, will participate in the workshop "Challenges and opportunities of MS evaluations (assessing the territorial dimension, disseminating the lessons learnt, measuring impact)" and give an input presentation.
